How is Manchester Gin Made?
After months of planning and researching the best methods to distill small batch gin, we invested in ‘Wendy’, our bespoke-made copper column still. We spent months perfecting both our recipe and also our technique to create a unique but contemporary take on a London Dry Gin.
When we say this is a small batch gin and we do everything by hand, we really aren’t joking! We hand fill, cap, label and write every bottle, it’s truly a labor of love in every sense of the word.
What does Manchester Gin taste like?
First and foremost we wanted to create a gin that WE wanted to drink and one that a bartender would be happy to recommend.
After months of development, we found the perfect balance of dryness and citrus, spicy and sweet. It’s unique mellow characteristic allows you to truly taste the full flavour profile from start to finish.
Our classic gin is a citrus lead contemporary style. Distilled on ‘Wendy’ our copper column still, we’ve taken inspiration from the city its created in with the use of two key botanicals; the northern favourites of Dandelion & Burdock root.
Our Raspberry variety has been infused with the finest raspberries to give a perfect fruity gin. More commonly known as “Pink Manchester Gin’, the aroma of the sweetest raspberries and it’s look make it unmistakable.
What botanical’s go into Manchester Gin?
Staying deeply rooted in the north, we set ourselves apart from the crowd through the use of two botanicals in particular; Dandelion and Burdock Root. Not only did we want to pay tribute to a drink that we both grew up loving, we also wanted to add an earthy centre to our gin. Along with Dandelion and Burdock Root, our award-winning signature gin is made up of ten other specially sourced botanicals including orange and lemon, liquorice and ground almond.
